SCCM with SCOM on the same server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I already have my SCCM server setup and running, Can I also run SCOM on the same box? I have read that all the ports are different and it is possible, however performance maybe an issue. I have also read that the reporting is a problem.

    Is there any microsoft documentation that states if this is a supported senario?

  • Hi,

    I have a lab environment and install SCCM and SCOM on the same box, so far, it's working well.

    But it's not recommended to do that as both of the two products need a powerful server if you can numerous clients to manage.

    Separating the role will improve the performance.

  • This is not recommend.

    Best Practices for SQL Server

    • Use a dedicated SQL Server for each site
    • Do not use the Configuration Manager site database server to run other SQL Server applications
    • Configure SQL Server to use Windows authentication
    • Install Configuration Manager and SQL Server on the same computer
    • Follow security best practices for SQL Server, noting the following issues:
    • The site server computer account must be a member of the Administrators group on the computer running SQL Server
    • If you install SQL Server using a domain user account, you must ensure that a Service Principal Name (SPN) is populated to Active Directory Domain Services

  • Hi,

    Yes you can run it on same box, but you don't want that. :-)

    Both products requires a lot of resources. You will defenitly face performance issues.
